Wiking’s IFAF Faction Suspends Six Nations Including the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Japan

Yesterday, the IFAF split grew a little wider when the Tommy Wiking-led Paris IFAF Congress suspended six of the world’s leading American football federations for non-compliance with his IFAF’s newly instated anti-doping rules.

USA Football (United States), Football Canada (Canada), Japanese American Football Federation (Japan), Federación Mexicana de Fútbol Americano (Mexico), Dansk Amerikansk Fodbold Forbund (Denmark), and the Suomen Amerikkalaisen Jalkapallon Liitto (Finland) were suspended for refusing to submit information related to athletes for the selection of a Registered Testing Pool (RTP).

None of the suspended nations recognize Mr. Wiking’s IFAF as the international governing body for American football since his controversial non-resignation in the spring of 2015.
